A Gran Canaria boat trip is a must for many people visiting the island but there are lots of options, and so many people selling tickets for them, that it's tricky to know which one is the right one for you.
After all, one person's banging party boat is another's noisy nightmare on the water. So, yo make sure you have the perfect day, here is the Gran Canaria Info guide to choosing the best Gran Canaria boat trip for you. Allthe boats mentioned here do pickups from all the main Gran Canaria resorts.
A good boat trip is a great Gran Canaria day out but the wrong boat can be an expensive headache. So, to make sure you choose the right trip, first decude exactly what you want out of your day on the water?
The most popular day trips are the large charater catamarans like the Sagitarius Cat, the Afrikat, or the Volcanic Party boat. These are big boats with lots of atmosphere and a fun atmosphere. Great if you want to socialise and party out on the water.
For a more tranquil day out, choose on of the smaller catamarans or speedboats such as the Exclusive Boat or the Blue M Yacht.
If what you realy want to see is dolphins swimming free in the ocean, you have a couple of good options. The two hour dolphin-watching trip on the Supercat has a great track record of finding the dolphins but is a big, busy boat that isn't for everyone. For a quieter and more intimate experience, use a smaller boat like the Exclusive Dolphin Search Charter, or the Blue M Yacht Luxury Dolphin Search Charter.

Lex Says: Book boat trips in advance to avoid disappointment as most boats are operating way below full capacity and fill up fast!
Gran Canaria is an exceptional place to go on a dolphin and whale watching boat as 27 of the world's 80 species of cetaceans have been recorded around the Canary Islands.
Common species include resident bottlenose dolphins (like Flipper) and short-finned pilot whales. Other species that visit Gran Canaria ever year are Risso's dolphins, common dolphins, spotted dolphins, spinner dophins, minke whales and the mysterious beaked whales.
The resident bottlenose dolphins are almost always just iff the south coast and easy to find while other species come and go with the seasons and the tuna. What makes Gran Canaria such a great whale- and dolphin-spotting location is that you never know what you are going to see but you do know that there will be something out there.
Alex Says: All dolphin and whale watching boats in Gran Canaria have to follow a strict Blue Boat code of conduct that guarantees the peace and safety of the animals.
All the trips we work with offer transfers to and from your accommodation in all the main Gran canaria resorts.
You are almost guaranteed to see dolphins on any given day but also watch out for whales, sea turtles and seabirds, and even flying fish.
The budget option is the two-hour trip on the Supercat catamaran. If the dolphins are there, the Supercat will find them. However, many people prefer a smaller boat because the experience is more intimate (you are closer to the water and it is much quieter). We recommend the Exclusive Dolphin Search Charter and the Blue M Yacht Luxury Dolphin Charter. Bother offer a four hour experience that includes the dolphins and also time for a swimming and relaxing stop by the coast.
To see more info about any of these options, and to chat to our local booking expert, just use this Whatsapp Form. Our Gran Canaria team has tested all the excursions and will be able to suggest the right trip for you.
Dolphin watching trips are a popular Gran Canaria excursion and places are limited by the size of the boat. Book your trip with Gran Canaria Info in advance and you'll have your spots reserved any day you want.
